Silver Ashe can’t let go of the desire to find her birth father and the urge to join a pack. Against the wishes of her brother, Trevor, and her vampire-lover, Nick, Silver leaves New Orleans for the woods of Louisiana.

As the guard and a dominant member of the Wolfe Pack, Viktor isn’t too sure of the city-dwelling stranger who comes trespassing. With the lack of female werewolves, Viktor soon sees Silver as a potential mate. Too bad she’s already spoken for by a bloodsucker.

Trapped between worlds, Silver’s faced with choosing between the lover she’s known most of her life, and the budding relationship with Viktor, where her future may lay. It’ll take some sweet talking and a whole lot of loving for Silver to find her place within the pack.

Available now via Ravenous Romance, Amazon, Barnes&Noble and other eRetailers.

Hopefully, you will fall in love with Nick and Viktor as much as I did.

Enjoy!

Stuff Your Stocking Blogfest: Louisa Bacio

A Naughty New Year’s Eve
By Louisa Bacio

Expectations for New Year’s Eve run high. Come on, confess: What would be your New Year’s fantasy? A delightful party, complete with gourmet food (where you never feel too stuffed or have an allergy); dancing (where you can wear any shoes you want and they will never hurt); the perfect balance of alcohol (where you feel fantastic but there’s no threat of hangover) and – admit it: Amazing sex!

Yes, you know it’s true. We want to stuff ourselves, dance until we’re wiped out, partake in “spirits,” and then have a wild romp.

It’s the perfect happy ending to round out the year, and start the new one with a bang. Literally.

So what goes wrong?

In my dating history, one of my worst dates ever happened to be New Year’s Eve. I was supposed to be attending a bash with my then boyfriend. And you know what the louse did? He came to pick me up, broke up with me and then still expected me to attend the party with him! Oh, no. Instead, I stayed home in an empty apartment, and had a pity party. When midnight hit, the sounds of people celebrating throughout the complex filtered into my room, and I lay in bed crying. (Moral: Don’t ditch your date before the party.)

Sob! So many years ago, and I still remember it! (That’s drama trauma.) Thinking back, I should have gone bad and hooked up with someone else.

But, I’ve had some pretty damn good ones, too. The good ones include a night in a hotel room (isn’t messing up the cool sheets away from home the best?), where it’s not necessary to make a long drive home before hitting the bed.

And, I’m sorry to say it, but you gotta watch those rich New Year’s Eve foods. The buffets serve a smorgasbord of delights that can have their own bash in your tummy. There are always plenty of shrimp cocktail, mini quiches, veggie-stuffed triangles, and dessert. Sigh: Mini cheesecakes! Let’s face it, though, do you want to eat or get frisky? Usually, you can’t do both.

Tell me: Good or bad, what’s your New Year’s Eve story, and what’s your recipe for the perfect night? (Are you willing to share your fantasy?) One lucky commenter will win their choice of an electronic copy of a book from my backlist.

Un-Sexiest Costumes

Did you know that there was a female “sexy” version of Chucky costume available? And, I use that descriptive term “sexy” loosely here. It’s in the name of the outfit. (I beg to differ!) Usually, come Halloween time, most women think follow the less-is-more concept. A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog discussing the most attractive costumes. Now, how about the un-sexiest?
Keep reading … there’s an offer of prizes.
1) Zombie or Anything Dead – Blood dripping and hanging flesh do not a sexy costume make! The November 2011 issue of Playboy features a of ZomBCon wrap-up, complete with a sexy zombie chick wearing black leather with the covering over her breast ripped off. Too bad, her breast went with it … leaving a gaping hole in her chest. Yes, ewww.
2) Pikachu from Pokemon – Maybe someone will disagree with me, but a giant padded yellow creature with a crooked tail, and a mask? Hmmm, I’ll pass.
3) Witch – Now, there can be attractive witch costumes out there, but we’re talking about the green-faced, wart-nosed version. Dump the black hat and go for Glinda the Good Witch instead.
4) Fiona from Shrek – I’m not talking the animated version of Cameron Diaz with red hair, but the actual ogre. We all know that ogres need love, too; however, green face paint doesn’t do it for me. (See witch, and we also can probably add goblins to the mix.)
Adult Gossamer Ghost Costume
5) The Sheet – While tooling through Halloween costume sites, I came across something called the Adult Gossamer Ghost Costume. Say what? You’ll have to see it to believe it. Definitely not a sexy Greek goddess.
So tell me, what did I miss? Got any other un-sexy costumes in your repertoire? If not, which of these would you say is the “worst?” Leave a comment and your email address if you’d like to win a goody bag filled with assorted treats. Ready to Pucker Up for a Vampire’s Kiss martini? Stop by my blog for the recipe. Also, I’m giving away a $10 Ravenous Romance gift certificate to one lucky winner!
Here’s a teaser on an upcoming release (coming soon from Ravenous Romance):
The Vampire, The Witch & The Werewolf 2: Chains of Silver
Adopted at birth, Silver Ashe discovers her blood-brother Trevor Pack is a werewolf, with a vampire and witch for lovers. All her teachings about the evils of the paranormal Others come into question. She runs to a family friend, Nick, for help.
Nick Stake takes his hobby as a vampire hunter personally. He strives to rid the world of evil bloodsuckers. When his best friend’s “kid” sister comes to him for advice, Nick discovers Silver’s more than grown up. He battles his growing desire for Silver and blindly holds true to his convictions.
Once Silver reaches her sexual maturity, she’ll inherit her full genetic heritage and turn into a werewolf. When death comes calling, Silver and Nick must face their darkest fears in order to break free from the chains that bind.
Happy Halloween!

Sexiest Costumes

By Louisa Bacio

The ultimate question around this time of year has to be: What are you wearing for Halloween? If you’re short on ideas, and want to attract, I’ve put together a list of some of the sexiest costumes.

Why is it that for many people Halloween offers the opportunity to shed one’s regular – and often boring – persona for one that’s open and unashamed? In no particular order, here’s a list of the top 10 costumes. Use your imagination if the wearer should be male or female.

1) French Maid – What adult novelty toy shop doesn’t sell a variation on the sexy maid. Think extremely short skirt, with the wearing bending over and frilly underwear underneath.

2) Pirate – Definitely don’t mean the grungy kind either. This voyager of the seven seas must be dapper (clean), and preferably with a chiseled chest that glistens under the sun.

3) Vampire – What’s your poison: Edward or Lestat? There’s nothing like the fantasy of the ultimate lover … for eternity.

4) Cleopatra – Nothing like a strong, sexy beautiful woman. That straight black hair and dazzling eyes … delicious. And what woman doesn’t like to accessorize with gold and jewels.

5) Cat – Whether it’s a cheetah, leopard or a witch’s black cat, if you’ve got the body for a stretch outfit … flaunt it.

6) The Sexy Scientist – Cathy Pegau, author of Rulebreaker.
“What’s better than a gal or guy with brains and a hot body beneath their lab coat? Knowledge of chemistry (to recognize when two people have it), physics (for understanding the laws of gravity and, ahem, leverage), and, of course, anatomy (’nuff said) are great reasons to investigate and experiment with your sexy scientist.”

7) Pin Up Girl or Leather Mistress – Of course, this choice comes from BDSM erotic writer Sascha Illyvich, who says, “The way the clothing draws the eyes to the parts of the body we want to guess at is arousing.”

8) Tara Lain, whose book Genetic Attraction includes a Halloween party scene, provided an excerpt to highlight a costume she considers uber-sexy. In this scene, the geneticist (ties in with Cathy’s sexy scientist above), Jake Martin, outs himself to the faculty by his costume—and fantastic companion.

As if she’d heard a call or caught a scent on the wind, she looked up. At first, she thought it was just a vision, some kind of mirage in this desert of humanity. Jake stood just inside the front door of the party room, his body covered in a golden breastplate over a toga, a helmet on top of the golden hair and a shield held before him. Oh my God — Alexander. It had to be. Alexander the Great. Beside him, a vision so ethereal, so heart-stoppingly beautiful, it was hard to grasp. Hephaestion, the lover of Alexander — Roan.
Light-headed, she thought she might pass out. Behind her she heard a gasp and then another, and the whispers began. Jake’s tall, powerful body gleamed, radiating energy and challenge. Beside him, Roan’s beautiful, lithe physique was draped in a toga almost as white as his skin. The nearly-black hair curled into ringlets, and his lushly lashed eyes glowed through the black eyeliner. A pure, blatant statement of liberty. Jake was dressed as the greatest of the Greek warriors, as famous for being bisexual as he was for being the conqueror of the known world, and Roan was the man he loved and according to legend was willing to give up the known world for. The gauntlet was thrown. This is who I am. Don’t like it? Tough.

9) Cowboy – We’re playing up to fantasies right? Oh, this cowboy must have tight jeans that are worn through in all of the right places. Stetson and boots, sans shirt again, a plus. For Zorro, throw in a black mask.

10) Fireman/Military – What woman doesn’t like an alpha male in a uniform, preferably rescuing the damsel in distress and taking her into his bed?

When this column runs, I’ll be at the GayRomLit Retreat in New Orleans. Me? Liking New Orleans … can you imagine? Anyway, tell me what you think is the sexiest costume, and you’ll be entered into winning one of the cute goody bags that I’m bringing with me to the Big Easy. Content include: Either Gummy Vampire or Werewolves; Chocolate coin, King Cake baby and Romance Trading Cards from my release The Vampire, The Witch & The Werewolf: A New Orleans Threesome.

The Vampire, the Witch & the Werewolf: Threesome in New Orleans

Haunted by paranormal abilities that she can’t control, and plagued by nightmares about a demon that seeks her soul, Lily Anima travels to New Orleans in search of salvation.

In the French Quarter, Lily dives into the paranormal world and enlists the help of an unlikely couple: a vampire, Lawrence Justice, and a werewolf, Trevor Pack.

As the trio encounters ghosts, voodoo and unspeakable evil, will Trevor and Lawrence be able to help Lily turn her powers into a gift rather than a curse? And when Lily discovers that she needs to lose her virginity in order to embrace her powers and get the demon off her back, will the twosome be able to survive as a threesome?

Stay tuned, coming soon from Ravenous Romance is the sequel Chains of Silver.
